NSAS Events for April 2016

6 04 2016
Here are the events that we have on this month.  I look forward to seeing you at one of them!


Night time observing is scheduled for Saturday the 9th.  We will be observing from our site in Terry Hills.

General Meeting

We have our general meeting on Tuesday the 19th.  Our guest lecturer is Greg Priestly, a well-known astroimager (time-lapse nightscape photography), and his talk is titled “Astronomical Timelapse: My perspective”.   He will discuss what he does and how he does it, including planning, equipment, setup, execution, workflow and tools, processing, results, and success and tragedy.

The New Astronomer’s Group

This month we start the New Astronomer’s Group (NAG) course for 2016.  If you’d like to attend, it is free for members, or $30 for non-members.  It will start at 7:30pm on April 26.  If you’d like to attend, please click on the link below and fill in the registration form so we can get an idea of numbers and cater accordingly.
